Need some information about happiness, business or other self-help or inspirational topics? A creative quote? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Since my niche is Happiness and I’m a self-help and business expert, I’ve got plenty of fun things to share. My articles have been published in print publications and all over the world, plus I’m a columnist for both a web site and a subscription-based newsletter. I’ve also had experience as a speaker and as both a radio and television guest.

Short Bio:

Brian Bagnall is an in-demand author and speaker. Brian is a serial entrepreneur who never “fit” into society and went on a never-ending quest to find happiness. He discovered that the conventional formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. Brian has recently taken his discoveries about happiness and used them as the basis for a book, The Happiness Bible, which can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and a bookstore near you.

Long Bio:

Brian Bagnall is an in-demand author, speaker and consultant who has written several books and spoken at conferences throughout the United States. He’s been featured in newspapers, magazines, and print books.  He’s also “the go-to-guy” when it comes to teaching people how to be truly happy. He’s shared the stage with inspirational legends like Daymond John (from ABC’s Shark Tank) and Marshall Sylver (Internationally renowned hypnotist that has a standing show at Harrah’s on the Las Vegas Strip) just to name a few.  Over 100,000 people to subscribe to his helpful tips on happiness and business via email, snail mail, Twitter and Facebook.

Brian Bagnall started his first company when he was just 20 years old.  Since then, he’s started companies in the niches of technology, real estate, and marketing.  Through his company, Bagnall & Associates, LLC (headquartered in Chicago, IL), he has gone on to advise Fortune 500 and major brand-name corporations as well as thousands of entrepreneurs and small business owners; he has crafted marketing campaigns that have sold tens of millions of dollars of goods and services. He’s helped hundreds of private clients become millionaires and multi-millionaires, fast.  Wanna know something?  None of it made him truly happy.  He kept thinking to himself “There HAS to be more to life than THIS.”

Brian is a serial entrepreneur who just never “fit” into society went on a never-ending quest to find happiness.  Our most commonly held formula for happiness is broken.  Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, make more money, happiness will follow. Happiness just seems to be so elusive and arbitrary — something all too often just out of reach.

He discovered that the conventional formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive.  Happiness is not a by-product of wealth or success but, rather, a personal quality to be learned and mastered.  Anyone can learn it too!  Brian has developed a happiness roadmap. Brian offers inspiring insights that will help seekers everywhere learn to cultivate true and lasting mega-happiness within themselves!  Brian not only teaches people how to be happy but how to live the way we were meant to.  Brian teaches people why we’re not happy, what happiness really is, and how to attain it, step-by-step.  Brian has recently taken his discoveries about happiness and used it as the basis for a book, The Happiness Bible, which can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and a bookstore near you.
